Case Studies

Ground Effect and Vehicle Design

The ground clearance of the vehicle plays a major role in the overall performance of the vehicle. Although most of the performance-oriented cars have low ground clearance in order to maintain low C.G., that also gives them a good advantage aerodynamically. Here we will be comparing the ground effect for the same vehicle design.

Drag Reduction

As the name suggests here we will be studying how the form and shape of the body define the drag coefficient. Understand the different ways in which the drug can be reduced. This will be majorly done by studying the evolution of design over years and how it has affected aerodynamics performance. We will be taking a brief look at some of the iconic designs.

About Aerodynamics of Vehicle Design Program

Aerodynamics is one of the old areas of interest for many engineers and scientists. This subject has been studied for a very long time and a lot of literature is available. It is very difficult for a beginner to streamline his/her learning process as everything looks interesting.

Do you know, the wings on the F1 car, at the front and the rear are placed strategically to create downforce in order to prevent the car from flying. As the F1 cars have the power to weight ratio of approx 1200 hp per ton. The front wing alone has the ability to generate enough downforce to counter the weight of the rear and has been designed to withstand 400 kg of weight.

In this course on aerodynamics study of vehicles, we will be taking a look at the various interesting similar case studies and understand the concept of drag reduction. Answer questions like – How does the ground clearance affect the performance of the car in terms of aerodynamics, and how has Tesla built the most aerodynamic efficient electric vehicle?

This course will take you through the process of calculating aerodynamic drag and lift forces theoretically and also on the basis of the simulation, and make you understand the application of different equations for different environments.
